Buhari’s daughter self-isolates after UK trip

A daughter of Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Burhari and First Lady Aisha Buhari is self-isolating after returning from the UK.

Mrs Buhari said their daughter had not shown any symptoms of coronavirus, but health officials advised her to go into self-isolation as she had returned on Thursday from a “high burden” country.

On Wednesday, Nigeria announced that it would be restricting travel from the UK, the US and 11 other states in Asia, Europe and the Middle East because of their rates of infection.

Mrs Buhari also said that she had shut her office because of “some staff who recently returned from the UK”.

Nigeria registered four new cases of the virus on Thursday, bringing to 12 the number infected.
